Maintain H-1B Status
Keep Your Address Current With USCIS
All H-1B's are required to report a change of address by completing Form AR-11 with USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) within 10 days of moving. You can file the AR-11 with USCIS online
In addition to notifying USCIS, please update your address information in "HR Pay Self Service" so that your tax forms are sent to the correct location.
Maintain Your Employment Activities & Report Anticipated Changes
Your H-1B status is dependent upon continuous employment. H-1B petitions are employer and position specific, which means that you are authorized by USCIS to work only at KU in a specific position. International Programs must be consulted prior to any changes in H-1B employment such as job titles, job duties, salary, percentage of time, or location. Filing an amended H-1B petition may be required under certain circumstances.
No Outside Employment
H-1B employees may not accept compensation, including honoraria, from any other entity besides KU. Individuals in H-1B status invited to give a lecture, collaborate, conduct research, or present at another institution can receive reimbursement for reasonable living and transportation costs only, no honorarium are permitted.
No Gaps in Employment
If you will be leaving KU for another H-1B employer, or joining KU from another H-1B employer, please remember that no gap in employment is permitted while in H-1B status. There is no grace period for H-1B's in the U.S.
